You can’t change people. If someone is going to moderate bad behaviour to make your relationship work, it has to be their own choice.
People either fancy someone or they don’t. Chemistry is a weird thing; it’s either there or it’s not. You can’t make someone fancy you if you leave them cold. If you get super-dolled up (men or women!) they might think you look nice, but they still won’t have the serious hots for you. However, you can work at bringing yourself to the attention of someone who hasn’t noticed you – yet …
You have to work 10 times harder than normal to make a success of a relationship with any sort of addict, be the addiction drink, drugs, gambling, or whatever. Is it worth it? I used to think 'well, Sharon hung on in there with Ozzy, and came out the other side'. Then I saw sense....
If you've been lonely for a long time and you want to find a new partner, go and do a load of other stuff. Anything - just don't make finding a new partner your main objective in life. Such desperation is off-putting.
someone for everyone.
Just because she's talking to you - yes, and smiling, too! - it doesn't mean she fancies you. Learn to tell the difference between being friendly and flirting....
Don’t believe all that crap about certain men being commitment phobes. Just because they don’t want to commit to you doesn’t mean they don’t want to commit to anyone.
Man leaves woman after long relationship. She exerts usual break up behaviour while still in the throes of heartbreak - the lost dress size, the new hair cut, the great clothes that she can suddenly get into. She then goes somewhere he will be, especially if he will be there with the new woman, to show him what he's missing. BIG MISTAKE. He knows what he's missing, he was with her for 10 years and he's seen her at her best, and at her worst, and all the stages in between, and he decided to move on. Looking great won't get back a man who doesn't want you anymore. It WILL, however, increase your confidence, make you go 'Yippee!' when you look in the mirror, however heartbroken you are, and get you some new admirers, so do it anyway!
- Fall asleep during the act. Worse if heavily, on top of partner, and snoring. (I speak from experience. I won't tell you from which side).
- Call partner by wrong name (it’s a cliché, I know, but more common than you might think). (Ditto the above).
- Keep a receptacle for bladder relief under the bed. It doesn’t matter if the loo is four floors up – just don’t do it. You may be thinking 'ugh! Who on earth would do that?' But an ex of mine went out with a woman who did. I believe the relationship only lasted a matter of days!
